    Check out this GEAR RTA by OFRF Technologies (China)
    I came across this RTA via Rip Trippers Instagram post, he should have a review up soon.

    Design and Concept is very similar to the Dovape Freedom RTA that I always wanted to try out.It’s a ultra low profile RTA with a single coil deck, short and narrow domed chamber that could potentially be onpar with RDA flavour.

    Unlike the Dovape Freedom RTA this GEAR RTA comes in all the Colours, decent juice capacity plus it has a narrow 510 diameter chimney with 510 Drip Tips.

    Parameters
    Size: 24mm x 24.6ml Tall
    Material: SS316 (6 Colors Available)
    E-juice Capacity: 2.3ml Standard Glass + 3.5ml Bubble Glass

    Finally a review on this tank. Could be the perfect “shorty” single coil tank.

    I'm sorry but I don't believe a word out of that idiots mouth ..... salesman and not a reviewer ....

    P.S it does look like an interesting tank though ... see you get mesh coils for it as well :)

    First look at the tank and yes I agree in taking Rip Tripper with a pinch of salt. Still a interesting looking tank and it’s single coil.

    The OFRF Mesh Coil are not for this tank, meant to use with other Mesh Coil tanks like the Wotofo Profile RDA

    Some good pros & cons feedback from SMM.

    The more I see this tank the more I want it. A RDA sized RTA on a mini mod, oh yes please.

    If it's anything like the Dovape Freedom RTA it's a winner in the flavour department with the added capacity of the tiny 3,5ml Bubble Tank.
    From the reviews I've seen it looks promising. Daniel from DJLSB Vapes has also reviewed it and loved it.

    Grimm Green is raving about it "almost flawless"

    Agreed regarding Rip.

    Any local retailers have stock?

    One of the vendors I know is waiting for some samples to arrive for testing before opening for orders.

    Should be a good tank, the size is what intrigues me the most.

    I am intrigued as to why you would want this above an RDTA with similar capacity?

    It looks damn nice though.

    For me it’s the size and dimension, basically the height of a RDA 24mm x 24mm.

    If it has good airflow and flavour that’s a bonus too.

    So is is the same height as a 2ml Wasp Nano RDTA and 2mm wider. I am wondering why you would want an RTA above an RDTA if their size and capacity is so similar.

    Not a huge fan of RDTA’s and the wasp Nano is 22mm. Awesome tank though just not what I’m after.

    The GEAR has a certain aesthetics to it that I want for one of my setups. Plus it hold 3.5ml with the smoke bubble glass.

    My GEAR RTA has arrived. This tank is tiny, looks even better in real life.

    Going to throw a build in and let you know what I think.

    As a size comparison and placed it next to the Recurve. For me it looks super cool with the bubble glass.

    Okay so my first impressions of this tank are...it’s a warm vape at 38w, not hot, just the coil is so close to your mouth like a RDA. Bottom airflow RDA’s are usually warm for me too.

    Might need to play around with a different coil, got a Alien 3*28/36 3mm @ 0.30 ohm. Brought it down to 30w and it’s cooled down and more inline with my kind of vape but at the expense of flavour. I think it would work better with a 2.5mm coil.

    Have the coil fairly low, will play around with coil height on the next refill.

    Airflow is just perfect for me, not to loud, very smooth and semi restricted. My sweet spot is halfway closed.

    What about the flavour?
    Well to compare it I setup my Wotofo Recurve RDA with the exact same coil and wick. Steam Masters Exclamation in both devices.

    And...Flavour is good, think I could get it to be great with another coil. As a comparison I find the Exclamation in the Recurve to be slightly sweeter as the top note with more of a Lychee flavour coming through.

    On the GEAR I get more Strawberry with the Ice as the top note. I put this flavour profile difference down to Bottom Airflow vs. Side Airflow. Also suspect the GEAR will be better suited for Deserts and Bakkery flavour as it’s a warmer vape with the current build.

    I wanted this RTA for its looks, I know crazy right. Flavour can’t always be the only reason for purchasing vape gear, at least for me that is. It’s got flavour don’t get me wrong, but is it as good as say the QP Juggerknot Mini, I have to say No, not yet.

    My initial score: 7/10
    Score updated to 8.5/10
    *New build*
    Coil: Smilely Kumeenit #5 Framed Stapled Alien @ 0.40 ohm
    Cotton: TFC Elite.

    Rob it would be good to get other opinions on this one. Different builds could be the ticket to unlocking the try potential of this RTA.

    I’m enjoying it though, was worth it IMHO.

    I wasn't gonna get it because I'm not a fan of small RTA's... but if Jai says he likens it to the Taifun then it must have really impressed him! I don't like the look of it either... but if it's a Chinese tank that has really good flavour then I need to play with it!

    I was interested in is whether it was better than the juggerknot, thanks. Waiting on comparison between the Juggerknot and elevate.

    @Rob Fisher, hows the elevate compared to the Juggerknot. Mines only coming tomorrow
